The WinFast PX6600 GT TDH shows the performance of the RADEON X700 XT in Far Cry, but the latter is hardly a mass product. So we’d better compare the Leadtek card to the RADEON X700 PRO which works at lower frequencies and has a 20% lower speed in high resolutions.
When full-screen anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering are enabled, the performance of the PX6600 GT TDH falls to the level of the RADEON X700 PRO but overclocking helps the Leadtek card to overtake not only the RADEON X700 XT, but also the GeForce 6800.
The WinFast PX6600 GT is slower than the RADEON X700 XT and PRO in low resolutions, but leaves them behind in higher display modes, getting very close to the GeForce 6800. Overclocking brings a 10-15% performance boost to the Leadtek card. Yet the 16-pipelined graphics cards remain unrivalled.
The “eye candy” mode doesn’t affect the performance of the card as negatively here as it did on the Pier map. Even at its default frequencies the Leadtek WinFast PX6600 GT TDH is as fast as the RADEON X700 XT and leaves the GeForce 6800 behind in high resolutions.
